California dreaming

Posted on Mon, 20 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

California dreaming in Newport Beach, high above the water. Warm summer days and outdoor spaces, high style and easy living. Understated sophistication, laid back yet luxurious. Dolphin Terrace by Kelly Nutt Design.

Cabin fever yet? Climbing the walls? Just want it to be back like it was before the corona virus? You’re not alone. I think the entire planet wants to turn back the clock to the good ol’ days. Time for a daydream getaway, to an airbnb in the middle of cow paddocks, to a little bit of rustic luxury in the Victorian countryside. It may only sleep up to 10 but we’ll take turns. We’ve learned how. Welcome to today’s fantasy The Wensley.

A heritage apartment and a chic beach side location. Ocean hues lead to light filled spaces. Contemporary furniture and art deco detailing. A sophisticated aesthetic by Sydney-based interior design firm Studio Quarters.

A green courtyard house

Posted on Wed, 8 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

We all dream of a verdant green courtyard but I had never thought of using green tiles. Designers Hugh-Jones Mackintosh converted an liberally “ochred” Tuscan ripoff into a vibrant, light-filled contemporary space. No structural changes were made. The magic comes from clever colour choices, charming art and the perfect combination of vintage and new pieces. Tthen there is the courtyard with its vivid green wall of Moroccan tiles. Stunning … and perfect for those with black thumbs 😉
